drive with it off and have the parking brake inspected for damage.
Partially engaged and you will burn you rear brake shoes/pads up. Fully engaged the car will not move.
Step on the brake and put the car in drive the brake will release
a simple test you could do would be, put your vehicle on drive then apply the emergency brake and let go the brake pedal. if the emergency brake is good your car shouldn't move at all.ifbrake shoes. it moves it may be your e-brake or worn
Replace emergency brake cable Secure emergency brake pedal in its upper most position (released)
I recommend you put it in drive first...And have your foot on the brake til you are sure you are ready to move off
Hot rubber ?
Because your brake system is not working properly. You need to have your brake system checked out and repaired before you have to make an emergency stop and then they fail to brake as they should. ALWAYS DRIVE SAFELY
First I would have the rear rotors removed to inspect the emergency brake shoe's and rotor for wear. Sometimes people are known to drive with the emergency brake engaged which will wear the shoe and rotor. If they are still within specs, there is an adjustment on the shoe's
If you look down just behind the emergency brake there is a little black plastic object maybe the size of a quarter you can push that and release the brake.
Put your foot on the brake, pu the car into drive and the parking break should disengage. if not, push on the parking break while holding the break in drive.
